Brief Answer:
Require detailed examination by a neurologist, provide more details

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Shaking or tremors at this age should be evaluated for parkinsons disease.
Is the shaking in one limb or whole body?
Shaking present at rest or during any movement?
Any slowness in day to day activities like eating, bathing?
Any history of fall, urinary complains?
Provide more clinical details.
Is there any visit to a neurologist for detailed examination?
Any history of memory loss or head injury?
Lyrica is not the primary drug for shaking and needs further evaluation.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further queries.
